Other Ways To Give

Let us help you choose the one that’s best for you! If you have any questions or are interested in making a Leadership Gift, please reach out to us at to set up a meeting.

Donor Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a philanthropic vehicle established at a public charity. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit, and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

Company Match

Many corporations will match their employees’ gifts, so your gift is doubled or tripled! Check with your employer’s benefits program.

Ask if your Pennsylvania employer participates in the PA-EITC (Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program), and would consider a win-win gift to the EITC-approved education programs at World Cafe Live.



Stocks are one of the most tax-effective ways to give. A gift of appreciated stock that has been held for more than one year can provide you with two tax benefits: (1) a charitable deduction equal to the average price of the stock on the day it transfers into the nonprofit recipient’s account and (2) avoidance of any capital gains tax on the appreciated stock. Please consult with your tax accountant.
